He was the second head of state to recognize Israel as an sovereign state and was known for preferring dialogue to the futility of war. After Black September, when Hussein forced out the Palestine Liberation Organization from Jordan, he joined with the UN Security Council for the promotion of peace in the Middle East, negotiating the Israel-Jordan Treaty of Peace. He won world honor by being a leader who lived his belief that we are all bound to live together in mutual respect and tolerance.
